Frequently Asked Questions

HOW MANY INVITATIONS DO I ORDER?

To calculate the number of invitations to order, count one invitation for each of the following:
 Couple (married or living together)
 Family with children under 18
 Each child 18 years old or older and still living at home
 Single guest
 Fiancee / fiance of a guest
 Invited boy-or-girl friend of a guest

After calculating the number of invitations, as noted above, add approximately 10 invitations to your order: 2 more for keepsakes, plus extras for the last-minute guests (and there will be last-minute guests.) Reorders later can be costly. Also, depending on how large your order is, add 5 additional envelopes in case of mistakes in addressing.

NAMES:
Q: Whose name should be listed first on the wedding invitation, the bride's or the groom's?
A: Ladies first. The bride's name should be first on all stationery used before the wedding vows are taken.

Q: What about the wedding reception? Whose name comes first on the stationery used then?
A: Once the wedding vows have been taken, the husband takes the lead: his name should be listed first.
  (Remember: "I now present to you... Mr. & Mrs.....")

STICKY SITUATIONS WITH THE GUEST LIST:
Q: Do I have to invite my guest's boyfriend or girlfriend?
A: If your guest is engaged to be married, their fiance must be invited. However, if they are only dating, you need not invite their boyfriend or girlfriend.

WHEN TO MAIL? 
Most established wedding planners agree that you should plan to mail your invitations six to eight weeks before the wedding (for local guests). For overseas guests, mailing your invitations three months in advance is advisable. Make sure you have one completely assembled invitation weighed at the post office to determine the correct postage. You may also want to consider sending a "Save The Date" up to six months in advance so that your guests have time to book their flights and schedule vacation time.

TWO ENVELOPES OR ONE? 
If your invitations are to be hand-delivered, an outer envelope should be used to keep the invitation envelope clean for a more impressive presentation to the guest. However, whether or not you opt for double envelopes is your decision. Many invitations are sent with single envelopes for a variety of reasons, including less paper waste and because some of the fancier custom-made envelope styles (like the French and Bavarian envelopes) are designed to be singles. If you order double envelopes and you also choose envelope linings, the inner envelope will be lined.

LINED INNER ENVELOPE
A lovely envelope liner adds that special elegant touch. You can select a liner that brings out the beauty of your invitation for a slight additional cost.

RECEPTION CARD
Reception cards are included when the reception is held at a different site than the ceremony or if you have different guest lists for the ceremony and the reception. The reception card wording either reflects the wording of your invitation or simply reads, "Reception immediately following the ceremony" with the location.

Sample Traditional Wording:
 
 Reception
 Immediately following the ceremony
 The Savannah Hotel
 Hastings, Christ Church

RESPONSE CARD
Response cards provide a simple and painless way for your guests to reply by the date that you indicate. Traditional cards have a space for your guests to write their names and indicate whether or not they will be attending. Some modern cards request the prospective guests to reply via telephone or email. As most party planning budgets require exact numbers, it is socially acceptable to call, or write, those guests who have not responded.

MAP AND DIRECTIONS CARDS
Preprinted enclosure cards providing directions to the ceremony and the reception site can be exceptionally helpful to your guests, especially those coming from out-of-town. Photocopied directions blemish the beauty of your beautiful invitation ensemble and are often very difficult to read.

WITHIN THE RIBBON CARDS
Another tradition is to designate special seating for select guests. The guests receiving these cards present them to the ushers, who will escort them to this special seating (usually in the front) that has been sectioned off by ribbon.
